Dearest Backers, Readers, and every Champion in between,
Stretch goal 1 (10 page story increase) has been met! We're inching toward that second stretch goal of the additional 10 pages on top of those. Regardless, our incentive list has some really great opportunities for anyone trying to get into "the business" to garner some real-world, professional feedback on his or her craft.
